  • LONDON (AP) — Britain's High Court has ruled that three Kenyans tortured during the Mau Mau rebellion against British colonial rule can proceed with compensation claims against the British government.

    The case involves Kenyans who say they were beaten and sexually assaulted by officers acting for the British administration trying to suppress the "Mau Mau" rebellion in the 1950s. Groups of Kenyans had attacked British officials and white farmers who had settled in some of Kenya's most fertile lands.

  • Hospital administration staff sit idle at an outpatient waiting area on March 9, 2012 at Mbagathi District Hospital in Nairobi, where a nurses strike has brought operations at the facility almost to a halt.
